Out on a road trip and the place we planned to have dinner is closed on Monday, Stopped at Holly Springs Country Store, The young man working there suggested The Gatehouse. Great service, Food was good. Homey atmosphere. Price is comparable or better to other restaurants like it. We would go back
Obviously a local favorite found behind the Main Street store front in quaint Pickens. Very courteous waitress and prompt attention when we entered. Ordered the daily special and chicken salad.

Menu offers a variety of fresh sandwiches, burgers, and entrees including steaks and seafood. Servers are competent and super nice. Buffet is available. There is also private dining available in a back room for large groups.
We really wanted to like this place since Pickens has very few nice sit-down restaurants, ( maybe none?). We wait a few months in between visits, hoping it will get better, but it don't.
